Serena Williams edged her younger sister at Lexington after a high-quality match, but the defeat didn’t affect Venus’ confidence too much as the 5-times Wimbledon champion just launched a new clothing collection, inspired from DC’s character Wonder Woman, that breathes power and fierce will.
Venus announced the launch of the new collection on her Instagram account along with a couple of photos illustrating her wearing pieces from the novel line. “Inspired by strong, fierce women who are both competitive and compassionate, I designed the new Wonder Woman DC x Eleven by Venus capsule collection because every woman should feel like Wonder Woman.
Shop our limited edition collection,” Venus Williams wrote on Instagram.
Venus partnered with DC Entertainment to be able to bring the Wonder Woman brand and image into the equation.
The story behind the new clothing line fits perfectly with the characteristics that made the famous character influence millions of people, especially women. “Inspired by strong, fierce women who are competitive and compassionate.
We channeled their confidence and determination to design a collection where everyone can experience what it feels like to be a superhero. With statement ‘armor’ pieces in gold and black with pops of star-power, you’ll be ready to take on the world!”, is written on Eleven by Venus’ official site.
Serena Williams beat Venus even if she was “super-relaxed”
Thursday, in the second round of the Lexington Open, Serena Williams battled hard to get past Venus. The 23-times Grand Slam winner came back from one set down to close a tight 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 in two hours and 19 minutes.
This was the 31st meeting between the iconic sisters. After the match, Serena Williams admitted that she played super-relaxed, even though the situation looked troublesome for her especially after a lost first set. "I've lost a few tight sets lately, so I told myself I really wanted to win this one and try to focus on those last two games.
I'm super relaxed; having no crowd sort of makes things more relaxing. I've practiced in louder places than this court! I honestly didn't come here to win. For the first time in my career, I came here to win some matches and see what happens.
I haven't had this much time off since the baby, so now I'm just trying to get some rhythm and see what happens," said Serena Williams.
